November Rose's Challenge

This month, I am the hostesss for our beautiful bouquet of roses.  I decided on a theme of "Birthday, Buttons, and Bling". 

My card base is Pure Luxury Lipstick Red, with a scrap of snowflake paper from my bin.  I layered that on white.  There are different layers of lace and trim, with a tulle bow.  The button in the center of the bow is antique milk glass with a silver luster.  I added MS snowflake punches with big clear gems for sparkle.  As for the sentiment, I combined 2 stamps.  The Merry and Bright is from Unity and the birthday part is from Making Memories. 

I have a friend who has a Christmas Eve birthday and I thought it would be a festive card for her.

Please be sure to check out what the rest of the Rose's have come up with.  Links to their blogs can be found on my sidebar.~~~~~~~~~>

Sorry for the short post, but I have been down with the virus my hubby had last week.  This is the first I have been able to lift my head.  Worst birthday gift my DH has ever given me!  Ha ha!

I would also like to thank all of the friends who sent birthday cards and wishes.  You are all so sweet and talented!
